a dozen people in pakistan in the last few days in areas the u.s. claims are full of militants. germany's long held the safe keys for europe's finances now though a former executive of its central bank explains whether keeping countries together with a currency has any future. it's easy to be a euro skeptic these days but our today's guest had reservations about the future of europe's common currency from the very start he was about seen the former member of germany's central bank is joining us now on their t. thank you very much for your time sir and your latest book you claimed germany didn't bat after that much from the introduction of huron and a lot of experts from other european countries could make the same claim is it any member that in your view can actually say the euro has been good for it no i don't
think so as the northern states did not to profit from the euro but it didn't. harm them eyes up to no maybe the two for the future. thousand states including france. profited first from the credit boom which went on to. two thousand and five and the now there are being damaged by the rise in. the current a common balanced if it's. by rising in term debt. hole in course rates. which which includes. cuts go on on the public expenditure and.
improve the competitiveness by. lowering the prices and close. to even even more harm saw they have before the. a long and complicated road so what's your recipe do you think that greece or arlin should accept the union or as some economists suggest the germination show delayed than exit the euro zone itself we have a not know their choice but to. stick to the agreement to the must be treaty. but we. should insist that all members of the euro area. also or to stick to the treaty and this means the north rather be large and
means that the. e c b. has to return. to its regular but all this is to supply economies with the sufficient supply of money but on and to. prevent any rise of inflation right now is the. if we tell you this is the means of the monetary policy. fine and cawing public sector our efforts. go into account deficits of the states by the way of printing money and saying this is a wrong cause because for me in the long run more information especially what you
are suggesting is that germany should put forward an ultimatum to because those who . pay for the property. we can simply stop a billion of the other members of the singer group the union. and to this would mean. that they would have to have to change their ways of dealing with the economy or they would have to leave as a union you've been together through some good times and now the tables have turned so do you think it's ok to abandon somebody you made strong commitment to at the time of crisis while the. monetary union was
based on the treaty of maastricht treaty and all that i'm saying is that we have to stick have to start again to stick to the treaty and to the regulations of this turkey because this is the only way that. a currency. union can work. and if others choose not to stick to the treaty or if. common currency proves to be too strong for them then it is because their decision to leave the currency union this is not not a version of. bandon in. any body. but it is the question of making the currency union work angela merkel said that
in europe collapses europe will collapse. what share do you think these collapse may take are we talking about a full blown catastrophe or just some sort of political divorce she said. or accord and or will power so best translation of their child would be is to fail so she says if the europe fails to europe. this is the political threat and in the end it is a means. to get people and political parties and their turnover of. the public to agree to their kind of policy but. one has
to ask what that means. to what is europe. so europe is first and foremost. a continent which stretches from. to be part of try to work hard it. is a much more than a union. in addition. to europe is a cultural idea and it kids as far as their european union is consarned it. it is the economic union and nothing of this does fail. to take your fields because. of the success story of your peen community was a written between nineteen forty five and nine hundred ninety nine
this. i thought half a century of piece of gross of the going employment of the social security and so on. the nothing which. which was created in the necessitated common single. and. in or to. try to preserve these the values these achievers. the common currency is not necessarily. can have it gives me it is maybe some seeing the nice to have but it is definitely not the must have
one of the reasons why your book became such a controversy is because you're invoking the holocaust which you believe is behind germany's guilt complex that also one of the reasons why it's so dedicated to the unification of europe i want to ask you how big of a role do you think politics history other emotional factors that playing in. making fiscal decisions are those decisions based on arithmetics or more or less in history books it's my concern that. we. have already taken and to continue to enforce the anomaly coolly and financially or on decisions which are to the disadvantage of virtually all members of the of the monetary union because.
we. feel the buy or past even within europe different people have different work ethics they have different saving and spending habits how big a factor culture or mentality is when it comes to. financial and fiscal policies different cultures need different systems and that what was the great mistake. in the. organization. and i was in the concept of the currency union was that we applied to. the maastricht treaty and.
the regulations ritual. that occurred accordance with the culture of the netherlands the culture of austria or germany or of the northern state but it did not. fit. into the culture of spain italy of france. culture of the south. is one. which. differently with conflicts. and so it needs more information to ruach properly doctors there are some thank you for a time thank you.
